Your Weather Authority: Dry skies early, possible scattered showers late

(WVUE) -

Plan for partly cloudy skies and several dry, warm hours today with some scattered storms by late morning and into the afternoon.

There will be a couple of downpours. Temperatures will rise to the lower to mid-90s, higher for those that don't see rain.

This pattern will continue through Saturday, then rain chances will increase in the late weekend and into Monday.

Most north shore rivers are back into their banks, but the Amite River will continue to cause backwater flooding in surrounding areas.

In the tropics, Tropical Storm Fiona, the sixth named storm of the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season, is still far from us. As it moves west-northwest, it is likely to get swept up by a trough and pulled out to sea.

Two more tropical waves are off the African coast right now and will be monitored for potential development next week.

Both systems are currently not a concern for Southeast Louisiana.
